1991 Cadillac Fleetwood Question: Failed No's toohigh

Everything passed except failed smog no's too high -
Answer 1
I believe you need to be looking at reasons your engine is running lean, creating a high amount of oxygen in your exhaust gas. This could be due to an air intake leak, a vacuum leak, or a sluggish oxygen sensor (or two). Some folks change catalytic converters for this - I would not do that unless you find that testing indicates the catalyst efficiency is compromised. Good luck. -
